Can’t skip from outside app 1/5
Only let’s you do 30sec ahead now.
Not as good anymore.. 2/5
The app is great to store files and lock them.. but it’s not as good as it was before. Now you can’t download videos as you could before. It’s not that great.
Can’t download files anymore! 1/5
Don’t spend money on this app! In a recent “update”, the developer removed the ability to download files. You can “copy” files or download entire web pages, but not individual files. I’ve emailed the developer regarding the removal of features I paid for, but they did not reply or care.
This app is no longer worth the money. Get a free app that does the same thing (Dolphin, Opera, etc.).
Update please!! 3/5
The developer needs to update the app, it can’t handle files that are over 2MB. The just crashes when it tries to open it, and when I try to open some files that are 200KB, it won’t load or shows another file that is already in there. This serious the second time pay for an app from the same developer, he just abandoned and deleted the old app from the App Store, I’m willing to give this a try (cause it’s way better that the old one), he just needs to fix a ton of bugs.
The Best For Downloading 5/5
By America's App Advisor
First, About Downloading & YouTube: YOU CANNOT DOWNLOAD YOUTUBE FILES USING THIS APP. If that’s what you seek - it’s not here.
Secondly, reviews which state this is not a functional tool for downloading are blaming the app. The reality; it doesn’t perform for them due to their own ignorance. They’re 🙉 like 🐵 chimpanzee’s 🙈 saying ‘our new Ferrari is such a dumb car, we keep waiting ... but we haven’t even seen it start yet!?! (FYI - if you’re confused, I’m basically saying chimps shouldn’t buy cars b/c they don’t drive and if you
They'd be far better off entering the correct MIME types in the App Settings (it only takes 2 minutes). But, then they’d be able to use the app and would have to quit yapping like little mutts.
Moving On: The UI, reliability and performance are top-notch. The built-in Web Browser has the most effective Desktop User Agent I’ve used, period. This App is a well-crafted tool. And it has a great deal in common with all other tools:
a). used properly = highly effective!
b). used improperly = highly ineffective!
If you’re clueless about MIME Types and Setting Up the App for your specific files & needs? Try adding these in your App Settings
Or ... Write the Developer, tell him your device, iOS version and (for example) say ‘I’d like to configure my MIME Settings for video files, audio files, pdf files and GIF files. Tell him once he sends those you’ll upgrade to the full version. You DO want to upgrade to the Full Version via In App Purchase - but make sure you can use the App first!!
About Me: I bought the iPhone 1 the moment the Apple Store in RI opened it’s doors on June 29, 2007. Ten years of iPhones & 4000 Apps later; I’ve learned quite a bit about iDevices and Apps. And this is a winner!!
Was formerly a paid customer for downloads until it stopped working. The app worked great though and served me well for a good year. Had to pay again for this new app. No big deal like I said I liked their product. Turns out this new app is actually worse. Crashes every time I try and save to photos.
I was using Downloads (a former name of this app) for many years as for its simplicity and 100% reliability. It allows downloads to your iphone from websites and then transfer of the files via iTunes to your Mac. It always worked flawlessly in opposition to the other similar (but not well programmed) apps! This one has a file playback system that allows you to make playlists and i used it often to playback my HD audio files transferred from the computer into the phone! Can’t believe it’s a free app! 👍🏻👍🏼👍🏽👍🏾👍🏿
App shuts down when downloading 1/5
Application crashes and shuts down when downloading. Is there any fix? Shouldn’t somebody test it before releasing it?
It is the best application 5/5
Why I like to download music and work and I can be an investigation of school tasks and listen to music at the same time after downloading this application and give them the five stars.
User for 4 years and now this?!!!! 1/5
•Crashes when trying to send downloads vids to camera roll.
•Some websites now don’t work because app keeps crashing
•Crash, crash, CRASH!!!
Note to Mr. Developer, if ain’t broke “DONT FIX IT!!!!”
Once a Great app now it’s simply garbage. Please upgrade and fix bugs!
Well ok 3/5
It works well enough but for some reason moving through photos to fast crashes it and gifs crash it if its to large so thats annoying as heck
The best downloading app! 5/5
This is the best downloading app! If you like to collect zip files to store for later use at any time this is a good app to have! I’m still an advocate of supporting my favorite artists. This gives me back up just in case I don’t get to purchase every album that drops.
Is good 5/5
By Bueno y mas
Ever since the update for iPhone X the app is being failing Guys Fix it
Previous App 1/5
I had the previous version of the app (Downloads) that was the full version. Now I have to spend another five dollars for the same app. I still have have that app but it crashes instantly. How lame.
They did a lot of changes silently in this app 1/5
That i hate, first i cannot longer add to photos and i cant download from some specific sites, i know cause i did some tests in differents iphones and I discovered that the files app worked perfectly having ios 9.3.3 and 10.3.3 but having ios 11 or above i feel like the creator of this app sabotage it without saying anything to the public if i could i give 0 rating for this changes i hate and i didnt know till now
App crashes every couple minutes and every time you try to save something you’ve downloaded to the camera roll.
Awesome App 5/5
I love the app. It’s awesome for doing all kinds of stuff. However, I purchased the original app, Downloads, or something like that years ago. And i’ve kept using it until I updated to ios 10 and it no longer worked. Now I would have to purchase the new pro version of this app, which doesn’t make me too happy.
Constantly crashes can’t even hit the back button without crashing
I want my $5 back you robbed me. I had to buy this twice.
Perfect for sharing music for friends 5/5
By Ali ej
If you’ve downloaded a music with this app
You can share that with airdrop and your friend can open it in every app that he/she want!
Was sad to find out that this was no longer Downloader. I got the light version of this back in 2011 and immediately bought the full version. I’ve used it all until last night when I decided to update ios, and honestly i regret it just because I lost all my music and Downloader doesn’t work anymore...
Keeps crashing 2/5
App keeps crashing when you click back page.
WON’T RESTORE MY PREVIOUS PURCHASE OF THE APP 1/5
I got your $4.99 right here!! Rip-off!!!
As many have stated, this program used to be called “Downloads” before iOS 11 came out, then it became unusable with the new OS. So then our friend Hian Zin Jong releases this update, gives it a different name, and charges more for it. The number one reason I even downloaded “Downloads” before was because of the ability to download movie and song files from the Internet. This new “Files App” has removed that functionality completely and is charging more.
The only reason I downloaded and bought this was because I thought it would be just the same as the old “Downloads”. It’s not. So what you have is a basic Internet browser that has less functionality as the loaded Safari for iOS. Let’s not even get into Mr. Jong’s customer service as there is none and he replies to nothing. “Files App” is constantly crashing for the most mundane functions. It’s literally garbage. As far as I’m concerned this app is a waste of your time and money and you should look elsewhere. Congratulations on scamming so many people out of their money Mr. Wang. Capitalism is alive and well.

App crashes when I try to save videos to my camera roll, other than that, great app!
By Me writing here

The app keeps closing and crashes
Not able to edit the name for a MP3 file 3/5
By Majdi Omar
Hope all is well, i have tried to edit a MP3 file many times like ( edit the name or/and delete the artwork picture that comes with the song) and i couldn’t do that..so please advise,
What happened to the old app? I loss a lot of stuff.
By Djicepac/ Pizzle
this app use to let me make-a music folder or playlist listen in the subway or email it but now it changed and i purchased the full version still didnt work
It’s great but... 3/5
Ever since the iPhone X support update I kept crashing when trying to use the app
Ok but scam 1/5
Triviawiz3000 said it best. It's a shame most people wont be able to see his review since only fake paid for reviews are shown first.
Dont do it. I bought the last app the developer made and then they didn't update it so it couldn't work with the new IOS update. Instead they made the exact same app with a different name and charged a newer price. Completely ridiculous. They will probably use this same method again and again in the future to keep scamming their own customers.
Dejavu or...? 1/5
Like most, I’m a user, or should I say I used to be a user of the “Downloads” app. However, it no longer works. It was a great app and I recommended it to multiple people. Anyways, I found out the creater of the app made another app called “Files.” It is oddly the exact same app and you have to repurchase again. I no longer have access to my other content, it doesn’t transfer over, and you are not grandfathered into the new app. So, I do not think I will be repurchasing.
By Debtors hookah
Developer should update the original “downloads” app , paid for it and now i gotta lose all my stuff and pay for this one that doesn’t work properly 😡😡😡
I have the old version 5/5
By Kiana Khoshmood
I already bought the old version and it’s not working anymore
I upgraded to ios 11 today
It was working and there was no updates
I searched your name and I found this
It’s not fair, why should I pay for this version as well
You are the same developer and this is literally the same app :(
the developer has deleted previous app which i’ve purchased. and giving this limited app to be purchased again
Almost Always 2/5
I love this app. I bought the full version. But unfortunately for no reason some websites will cause the app to crash. I have opened the websites on other browsers (safari and google) and neither crashed. I'm hoping this gets fixed by the next update. Also not this is on my iphone but on my iPad It doesn't crash. Go figure. One more thing. After I delete a file I won’t be able to open up another file. I need to close and re-open the app for anything it work afterwards.
Worst developer worst service double dipping thief 1/5
I used his other app downloads for years and when iOS 11 came out it became useless because he didn’t update it to 64 bit. Then had to buy this app which worked with iOS 11 until latest update and now it does what downloads does, opens and immediately crashes. Emailed developer and no response. And it says app was updated a week ago. Let’s see if this double dipping thief fixes the issue or if I will have to spend another half a day moving all my stuff out of this app like I did with downloads.
No way to download. App is now useless to me. 2/5
By Bugz baby
I Used to love the app, I had to hold down the link and the “download file as” would appear. Now, there is only an “open” option neither that or tapping download link will give an option to download the video just to open it. Please fix. Just started after updating the app to this new version. Hate to switch to a newer app but I need to download
It’s a Scam app people! Do not purchase! 1/5
By SL Manula
This app will work for sometime until it convince you pay for the full version. But eventually with time the developer will make the app unusable (even though you don’t update it). And again the developer will release another app with a different name to do the same trick and make you purchase that as well.
Doesn't prompt to download 1/5
I had the precursor of this app on my iPhone until recently when it no longer worked for the new IOS. So, I found this app to replace it. The problem is that unlike the other app when I click on a video it just plays the video where as the other app, downloads, would prompt me to let me know I could download the video instead of viewing it right then.
Scam app...that works. 1/5
You will pay $4.99 for an app that will do exactly what you want it to do. Then you will hold your breath for every ios update. It may not be for a while but after one of those updates, this app will stop working. All of your songs or other files will be lost. Instead of updating your already paid for app the designer will simply change its name and charge you another $4.99 or so. Dont expect a response if you try to contact him. This is the applestore version of a ponzi scheme.
Add feature 5/5
Please add video player with swipe left and right to forward movie time, and swipe up and down to volume up and down
More fixed 5/5
So can we get the video forward/backward scrub to the bottom of the screen? On my iPhone X whenever I’m viewing a video horizontally, whenever I want to skip to a certain part in the video I’m always accidentally swiping down on my notifications. Also can you make the video viewer fit towards the iPhoneX as well? I just paid for this, so it’d be nice! Thanks
